HAS STUART ARMSTRONG given a big hint he sees his future at Celtic after admitting he’s focussing on being as fit as possible for the new season above all else?
The Celtic midfielder is entering into the last year of his deal having only signed a short term extension last summer.
Many have speculated Armstrong will head out when the window opens if he doesn’t sign a new deal but the player himself is just looking to be ready after having a below par season this year.
“I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself for next season, it is just about making sure I am fit and trying to take my chance when it comes.
“It isn’t about proving a point. You sometimes take for granted when you are physically fit and well, and the frustration which comes from being injured. Staying fit and injury free is something I want to be.”
It remains to be seen if Celtic will actively try and sell the player, especially if he can start talking to clubs in 6-months time.
Would you keep Stuart at the club or should Celtic cash in on him if he refuses a new deal?
Southampton have seemingly been interested in the player with reports down south suggesting they’re willing to spend upwards of £4million to secure the player.
A drop in the ocean for a Premier League side, even if he has only got one year left.
